Are you positive and results-driven with an impressive track-record in building and managing relationships in fundraising, volunteering, or sales?
Why do we ask? Because almost one in two people will develop cancer in their lifetime and it’s Macmillan's aim to raise funds to be there to help everyone who needs us. Regional fundraising already generates over £40m a year across the UK, but we need someone like you to help us raise much more and inspire more people to give us support.
The candidates we are looking for will be experienced in working with and supporting fundraising groups and individuals, confident working independently, equipped with a strategic mind-set, focus, drive and enthusiasm, as well as excellent communication and relationship building skills. You will be adept at planning and prioritising to meet the multiple calls on your time. Using all these skills and traits, you'll create and implement an innovative plan - one that maximises our impact in the area and delivers strategic financial and non-financial objectives through a network of volunteer groups and individuals.
You'll be part of a small north of Scotland area fundraising team, wider regional team, and UK-wide fundraising department, which builds long term sustainable relationships and inspires millions to get involved in improving the lives of people living with cancer.
As a volunteer focussed Fundraising Manager in the North of Scotland, you will ideally be based in the centre of the Highlands and work with Macmillan’s existing volunteer fundraising committees across the north area. You'll also be expected to identify and secure new volunteer relationships to grow support and maximise fundraising potential. Some previous experience of working with the media to recognise and demonstrate how our volunteers and supporters can make a real difference would be welcome.
In return for your hard work and impressive results, we commit to actively developing you and our benefits include private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.
Macmillan’s Fundraising Managers are home based mobile workers who travel extensively within the defined geographical area for their role. You must have a full UK driving licence at the time of application. A car allowance is provided with the role. There will also be a requirement for flexible and some unsocial and out of hours working to support evening and weekend activity: you will be compensated for this with time off in lieu.
You may have experience of the following: Regional Fundraiser, Sales Manager, Business Development Manager, Key Account Manager, or Client Relations Manager.
First stage interviews planned for 5 July 2018. For those successful at the first stage, there will also be second (final) interviews on a date to be confirmed.
